France: French Falun Gong Association Delivers an Open Letter to the Thai Embassy

On the 14th of December 2005, representatives of French Falun Gong practitioners submitted an open letter to the Thai Embassy in Paris. The letter condemned Thai police officers’ interference with Falun Gong practitioners’ peaceful protest at the Chinese Embassy in Thailand, bowing to the Chinese Embassy’s pressure. The letter also urged the Thai government to resist pressure from the Chinese Communist regime.

On the 10th of December — International Human Rights Day — Falun Gong practitioners in Thailand were holding a protest opposite the Chinese Embassy in Bangkok. They were exposing the recent rape of two female Falun Gong practitioners in the Dongchengfang Town Police Station in Tunzhou City, Hebei Province by Chinese policeman He Xuejian. Practitioners handed out leaflets to passers-by to let them know about the rape and ask them to call for an end to the persecution against Falun Gong.

Around noontime, under the Chinese Embassy’s pressure, dozens of uniformed and plainclothes police crossed the road and manhandled some of the peacefully protesting practitioners. The police forcibly dragged the practitioners away, searched their bags and took away their banners. As a result, practitioners suffered damage to their belongings and physical injury.

Representatives of Falun Gong practitioners in France talked with an official at the Thai Embassy. After listening carefully to the description of the incident, the official promised to hand-deliver the open letter to the Ambassador. Attached to the open letter was an investigative report on the Chinese Communist Party’s persecution of Falun Gong by the World Organisation to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong and a copy of “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party”.
